This publication was prepared with the intention to fill a gap existing in the general industry literature on port and harbor engineering and provide the practicing engineers with the necessary background information which they need in order to be able to design various port and harbor structures for the ship's berthing, mooring, and their repair. It contains a thorough introductory part and should also be very useful to all parties involved in shipping operations such as port authority engineers, port planners, marine contractors and terminal operators. The chapters of the book provide necsessary information of ship's dimenasions and characteristics, general ship design considerations, operational/environmental loads, design of the berthing loads and fender systems as well as various fixed and floating structures, etc.
